So, over the past year or so, I've acquired some friend, most people may consider them "stoners". While drug use doesn't bother me, I would rather not be considered a drug addict. At first, be considered this didn't bother me at all, but now it's starting to annoy me. My friends/acquaintances have started asking me if I'm doing drugs, people I've know for several years. Like this girl who lived by me whom I used to play basketball with several times a week, asked me if I was on drugs and started avoiding me. In order to remove this tag, I cut my hair and changed the way I talk (sorta.) I've also been trying to distance myself from my stoned friends, but now they won't leave me alone. Any advice on how to distance myself from these people and remove the title of "druggie"?

douche-bag alert.

If you're trying to ditch your real friends because you want to be cool and not a drugie you're a fag.

if you really don't like these people anymore just straight up tell them. its not like they're gonna kick your ass because you don't like them anymore...

Just tell her that your not a "druggie." Start hanging out with your old friends more if that's what you want. If the other guys keep bothering you, just tell them that's not what your into.

Pretend like you were hooked on drugs, went to rehab, relapsed, accepted Jesus Christ as your savior and quit drugs again, and now you're writing your memoirs. Then people will KNOW you're not a druggie.

I still hang out with my old friends, I've talked to a couple of them about it too. My main concern is to dump my loser friends, which sounds douchey, and kind of is, but it needs to happen.

Yea, it sucks, but if you feel you don't want to hang out with them anymore, just do it. I doubt they will really care honestly. If what you said is true, you've only been hanging out with them for a little over a year. It's not like your lifelong friends or anything.

Just my two cents.

You can just deny everything when people accuse you of using drugs. If you really don't use them, they'll know after talking to you for a while. About your friends, well, it's up to you. If you don't appreciate them enough as true friends then just tell them. It'll be nicer than to ignore them, but if you consider them good true friends just keep hanging out with them regardless of what people think of you. You won't become a druggie just because some people think you are.

Best way I know how to convince people you're not a drug addict is to break merchandise at your local Walmart. That'll show 'em.

Looks like he wants to ditch his stoner friends because his friend's activities are affecting him negatively.

You don't have to distance yourself from your friends to avoid getting the title druggie. All you really have to do is if someone asks like you've said they have been just tell them no and if they seem to judge you and think you're lying then either say something along the lines of yes I know some people I'm associated with do drugs but it doesn't mean I'm doing them also. Or even point out that they may be associated with people involved with drugs too it happens everywhere now. And if they continue to judge you maybe they aren't your real friends.

whyyn hang out with stoners if you dont blaze>?

i mean, this is coming from a guy who used to smoke weed every single day for a solid year: stoners can be some of the most boring people ever to spend time with

the burnout life is NOT fun x___x

Hey man, tell all your stoner friends you rather be around people that will make you look good, not people you enjoy the company of.

Problem solved.

how are they affecting him negatively? because people call him a stoner? because some shallow ass girl isn't talking to him?
that's not bad, now if they were pressuring him to smoke and whatnot then thats a fine reason to ditch their asses, or if they were getting him into trouble thats another reason to ditch them, or if they are boring as a ****ing stump those are all fine to leave them. But if you want to get rid of someone because they aren't with the in crowd it is indeed a douche move.

They are boring, and they do get me in trouble, and it wasn't some random shallow ass girl, she's one of the only girls at my school who isn't a bitch to everyone. I'm not ditching my friends to be in the "in crowd" I'm ditching them so I don't become them.

Man, it was a real effort to read your post. Learn sentence structure.

Secondly, it's affecting him negatively because he's being given a negative label due to the association with his friends. He doesn't actually fit into the label, and that label is keeping him from the things he wants.

I don't care what you personally think is 'good' or 'bad.' The simple fact is that being associated with those who're smoking is keeping him from being happy.

perfectly reasonable, some of my closest friends got to the point where they refuse to leave like a 10 min walk from their house because all they want to do every single day is get high and play video games, or even more retarded, just walk around the streets doing absolutely nothing

its serious boring as fvck, last summer for me was exactly that and it was a waste of life. Seems like some of those guys are going to be doing that for a long time still :/

I hate stoners like that, when I get high i go skiing, surfing, or go for a nice hike. I don't see the point in wasting your time sitting indoors while you're high, it's not like video games or t.v. are anymore interesting than usual.

well, i have to admit, video games are more intense/ focused and almost anything on tv can be hilarious, but yeah its really a waste of time.

i do it as a once in a while thing now, either to kill stress, enjoy some music in a different way, etc etc etc.
